One of the developmental activities that cubs enjoy, in the wild or at ABR, is play-fighting.  As they spar with one another, they learn strategies that will be important as they grow.  They also develop their strength and agility.  Here is a sequence of photos that show a “cubby rumble” between Carrie and Jerry Bear.  They are well matched in size and strength.
